Winging in the Rain

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Gillygooly Shamrock,
thanks to lots of luck,
qualified to enter
the Euro Non-League Cup..
First Round match was scheduled
for following Saturday,
against Atletico Viagra,
to be played away…

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 After boarding budget airline
known as Spanish Fly,
soon they saw the shore of Spain
from up in the sky..
then Patrick O’Flaccidity
captain of the team,
unfurled an umbrella
and donned raincoat of green…

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Manager Mick O’Flatulence
cried, “T’is could prove a folly!
It brings bad luck t’ be indoors
beneat’ an open brolly!!”
“Maybe so,” young Pat replied,
“But I’ve heard an ol’ refrain..
an’ it says t’ rain in Spain
falls mainly on t’ plane!!!”
